back in july with the threshold of those tax hikes being at the $250,000 level. and that they could kind of say to the house, now the ball is in your court, you have to deal with this, it's still very much a possibility, don, that this doesn't work out, that we go over the fiscal cliff, and that was reflected today on the sunday shows from both democrats and republicans, take a listen. >> passing plan b the other night would not have changed the outcome, we're going to go over the cliff before, we're going to go over the cliff now. you cannot negotiate with someone that doesn't want to negotiate. >> in the aftermath of the house republicans rejecting speaker boehn boehner's plan b, i feel it's more likely we will go over the cliff than not, and that -- if we allow that to happen, it will be the most colossal consequence shall act of congressional irresponsibleability in a long time. maybe ever in american history. >> officially, the president is expected to be here -- or is supposedly here in hawaii through the new year, i think the expectation at this point is that with congress re
a bill exactly like this sitting in the united states senate. harry reid passed it back in july, and republicans refused to vote on it. boehner, why don't you vote on that? the time for complaining about this deal, totally over. >> nobody can get 100% of what they want, and this is not simply a contest between parties in terms of who looks good and who doesn't. >> don't you think republicans need to be careful about pushing back on this for the good of the country? if no deal is struck this year, president obama, what does he have? well, he's got the inauguration coming up. a big platform. he's got the state of the union address coming up. a big platform. he is going to have a better chance to have the american people on his side. president obama urged all members of congress to get some perspective over the holiday weekend on this. >> everybody can cool off. everybody can drink some eggnog, have some christmas cookies, sing some christmas carols, enjoy the company of loved ones, and then i'd ask every member of congress while they're back home to think about that. think about t
in july and for december 72 points. in july, it was 82. so we're seeing the sentiment decline over the last couple of months. also, consumer confidence at the lowest it's been in five months so really seeing that kind of permeate over the last couple of months and especially goins forward and we have also seen some mild weather over the last couple of months so especially in the midwest and the northeast so i think that's going to have something to do with the fact consumers aren't spending that much. >> you would think that because thanksgiving, we think back to november, fell earlier this year. >> right. we had more time to spend. >> we had more money spending and would think that the number would be a little fluffier. >> you would think. think about what was happening in those 31 days where people supposed to spend. people were recovering from sandy. all we have been bombarded with is negative news and newtown and i think weighing on the minds of the american consumer more than we think. >> thank you. appreciate your time. >>> president obama in hawaii with his family and fiscal

of the battle of britain. the air battle began in mid july. >> of 1940? >> of 1940. that is when the invasion scare began. the germans softening them up for the final blow, which churchill never believed was coming. i found that fascinating. he never for a minute believe the germans would invade. he assumed it was a scare tactic to build up the army. it did not help the u.s. was dragging its feet. the final plan, the german plan would be to soften up air bases in late august, early september, crushed the remnants of the raf. it was a good plan. while daring -- goering got pillar's permission to bomb the ports -- bombing was so ineffective for both sides. churchill said, give it back to them. and that was the beginning. so, the blitz starts on september 7 in the evening. the germans came the next 81, 82 nights, something like that. and the terror bombing that they had feared and predicted began. there was no stopping the bombers. the bombers always got through. >> tommy people were killed and wounded in great britain? >> i think about 45,000 londoners were killed. at the end, the v2 rockets ca

[laughter] so i asked the curator. he said, well, i can't think of anybody famous.

the right to own guns is more important. opinion was essentially divided in july after the deadly movie theater shootings in aurora, colorado. 47% said it was more important to protect gun ownership. 46% said it was more important to protect gun rights. a big part of the debate stems from the number of guns in this country. there are more than 297 million privately-owned firearms in the u.s. according to a congressional research service report. the gun industry here is thriving with profits doubling during the great recession. u.s. firearms remain one of the most successful industries in the world. stock prices of the two largest publicly traded firearm companies skyrocketed from the president's inauguration to the latest high. smith & wesson up over 260% and industry leader sturm, ruger and company up over 500%. just to give you an example here of comparison. you would have made less money if you bought a share of tech darling apple which had a lower gain than sturm, ruger & company, but you didn't have to buy stock to win. industry jobs commonly reward employees with a $140,000 salary
. so guys when you look at the vix, remember, we haven't been at these levels since july, and as one trader just pointed out, we were 80 points lower in the s&p 500 the last time we were at these levels in the vix, so things aren't exactly matching up, and his call would be to short the vix at these levels because it's certainly high for where the market is right now. back to you. ashley: you're absolutely right. sandra smith at the cme thank you. we have juss turned positive, literally just above the water mark, now we have just gone below. you think about it, we were down 148 points. so as sandra says, maybe someone knows something about that meeting on sunday. who knows. but certainly the market reacting. the closing bell ringing in about 16, 18 minutes, somewhere in there. let's call it 17. he made the right call on bank of america when everybody else was saying dump it. founder of new generation research told clients to buy that troubled bank at the end of last year when no one else wanted in. b of a, guess what, has more than doubled since then. now, he's found another treasure

're celebrating? i don't think it's easter or july 4 and we haven't quite gotten to new year's day yet. i believe the holiday we're celebrating is christmas. and we should call it a christmas tree. and they kind of set it o rest that they don't really use that word here, that they're more inclusive than calling a christmas tree a christmas tree. >> rick: you bring up a good point. when you and i were kids, it was very common, everybody said merry christmas to everyone at that time. and i grew up in a predominantly christian town. when i moved away into a larger city and eventually had some jewish friends in a town that didn't have a big jewish population, i suddenly became away there was hanukkah. we said things happy holidays to have an idea of inclusivity. but this has gone so far the other way. how do you think that transition happened? >> well, i think we've become so politically correct, frankly speaking, that really our brains have fallen out. it is okay to say merry christmas. it is okay to say happy hanukkah. the supreme court has already weighed in on these issues and two landmark cases,
